Kanye West Asks Mark Zuckerberg To Invest $1 Billion Into "Kanye West Ideas"

Kanye is at it again. 

Another day, another tweet storm by Kanye West. And to cap this Valentine's Day weekend off, Kanye took to Twitter for another "very important" message. All the Chicago native wants to do is make the world a dope place, and to do that, he asked Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to "invest $1 billion into Kanye West ideas."

This new plea is coming off the heels of his public announcement that the T.L.O.P. artist is $53 million in debt. Previous reports have claimed that Ye has collected debt while getting his Yeezy fashion lines off the ground, but the verdict is still out on whether this is completely true.

But the point is, Kanye is not looking to use the money to help himself, but to employ a very ambitious plan to save the industry and the world. Yeezy's rant took a lot of different directions, but after talking about the Grammys and his oath to earn 100 awards before his death, he turned his Twitter fingers to complaining about the industry saying he's “tired of music controlled by money and perception." That's when he pointed to the Facebook founder for support.

"Mark, I am publicly asking for help," he tweeted. "Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw. You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house…World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, Instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…I’m this generation’s Disney… I want to bring dope sh*t to the world… I don’t have enough resources to create what I really can."

To set the record straight: Mark Zuckerberg's birthday is actually in May, but that didn't stop Ye from continuing. The "Ultra Light Beams" rapper also went on to share what may have been a business plan he designed from four years ago. The plan named after his mother showed a number of boxes, split into categories based on influence and organization.

Unfortunately, he admitted that he had many meetings with professionals about this plan, but none of them "lifted a finger to help." Ye and Facebook have somewhat of a relationship, as Kanye previously performed material from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy at the headquarters  many years ago. So maybe Zuckerberg will be that one person to lift a finger to help. Check out more of what Kanye had to say below.

Jada Pinkett Smith Opens Up About Past Porn Addiction

Jada Pinkett Smith discussed her previously "unhealthy" addiction to porn on her Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk.

The actress opened up on Monday's episode (May 20) about her relationship to porn, which she revealed occurred shortly before her relationship with her husband Will Smith began.

"If I was still on my porn game, I'd be able to show you some good porn," she said to her daughter Willow and mother Adrienne shortly before the episode began.

"Back in the day I had a little porn addiction, but I wasn't in a relationship when I had a porn addiction, believe it or not, thank goodness," she said. "...Maybe I’ll say now that I had an unhealthy relationship to porn at one point in my life where I was trying to practice abstinence."

When prompted by her daughter on what brought on this "fixation" to adult entertainment, Jada discussed that it came from an emotional place.

"It was actually like feeling like an emptiness, at least you think it is," she explained. "But it's actually not."

Later on in the episode, the trio brought in a couple who explained how the man's porn addiction nearly cost them their marriage.

Watch the full episode below.

Nipsey Hussle's Sister Maintains Custody Of His Daughter

According to reports, Nipsey Hussle's sister Samantha will retain custody of his 10-year-old daughter, Emani.

TMZ says that the late rapper's family believes that Emani's biological mother, Tanisha Foster, is "unfit" to take care of the child. Foster was interviewed briefly by the gossip site's cameras regarding the verdict, where she voiced her disappointment.

"I'm pissed off," she said. When prompted about matters such as visitation rights for the child, Foster did not comment. There is reportedly another hearing in July.

"Tanisha's lawyer, Larry Lewellyn, tells TMZ he's working with Nipsey's family on a visitation schedule that will be in Emani's best interest," reports the site. Emani has been living under the care of Smith since her father's untimely death in late-March.

As VIBE previously reported, a warrant was reportedly sent out for Foster's arrest after she failed to appear in court for a DUI case. "Foster skipped out on her court date on May 15... which resulted in her probation being revoked and a bench warrant for her arrest being issued," we wrote.

Congrats: Ciara To Study At Harvard Business School

Props are in order for Ciara. The singer will reportedly be attending an Ivy League school– Harvard University to be exact– to continue to level up.

According to People, a representative for CiCi confirmed that the superstar will be taking classes at the prestigious Boston college's business school in the Business of Entertainment, Media and Sports program. The school's website notes that "admission to Ciara’s specific program is a 'selective process based on … professional achievement and organizational responsibilities.'"

As we know, attending college is no easy feat, and the "Thinkin' Bout You" singer will reportedly learn to "develop and execute more effective business strategies" as well as “debate and analyze the business and technology trends that are redefining the industry."

"I always dreamt of going to college, but by God’s grace, my music career took me on a path that I’m so thankful for," Ciara wrote on Instagram. "This week I got accepted into Harvard! Words cannot describe my excitement! Thank you @anitaelberse for a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend @Harvard BEMS."

Ciara's latest album, Beauty Marks, dropped earlier this month, and she also recently became a full-blown business woman when she announced her plans to start her own label and company, Beauty Marks Entertainment. BME will reportedly live at the crossroads of entertainment, "where music intersects with Film, Fashion, Technology & Philanthropy."
